Icicle Icicle (With Orton Effect)
Icicles that has formed down by the lake. We have had temperatures below freezing a few days now but the lake is not frozen yet so the moisture from it condenses on nearby branches forming these lovely icicles.
Location: Hälleboda near Kallhäll in Järfälla, Stockholm, Sweden.
The orton effect is done by combining a normal picture with a second picture taken out of focus of the same scene. The effect creates a kind of "glow" around contrasts in the picture and can sometimes be very effectful.
